Wikipedia All-Stars: Mr.T

Ok time for a real wikipedia all star.  Everyone knows who Mr.T is, but in case your grew up under a rock and this is your first day in the real world and had the misfortune of someone showing you my blog, Mr.T is this guy:



Impressive I know. Whats even MORE impressive is the following information pulled from his wiki page:

In 1984, he made a motivational video called Be Somebody... or Be Somebody's Fool!. He gives helpful advice to children throughout the video; for example, he teaches them how to understand and appreciate their origins, how to dress fashionably without buying designer labels, how to make tripping up look like breakdancing, how to control their anger, and how to deal with peer pressure. The video is roughly one hour long, but contains 30 minutes of singing, either by the group of children accompanying him, or by Mr. T himself. He sings "Treat Your Mother Right (Treat Her Right)," in which he enumerates the reasons why it is important to treat your mother right, and also raps a song about growing up in the ghetto and praising God. The raps in this video were written by Ice T.
Add this to my bucket list: WATCH BE SOMEDODY...OR BE SOMEBODY'S FOOL!! All of those things he teaches are the things I struggle with everyday. Especially the breakdancing one. My birthday is next month, so if anyone needed a hint of what to get me...this is pretty much all I would need for the rest of my life. Also, some Swedish Fish would be great.

p.s.- I would also suggest checking out the wealth of information found in the 'Personal Life' section of Mr Ts wikipedia page. Spoiler alert: its only 6 words long.

Wikipedia All-Stars: Jicama

Jicama is a root type vegetable found throughout the world. Here is a little factoid I learned on wiki that I would like to share with everyone:

 In contrast to the root, the remainder of the j√≠cama plant is very poisonous; the seeds contain the toxin rotenone, which is used to poison insects and fish.
I found that interesting. This wasn't supposed to funny, but rather educational. No one can ever say they don't learn anything from my blog.

Anti-Jokes.

Thanks to my friend Ashley, I recently been introduced to the world of anti-jokes. They are jokes that start off normally but end extremely serious. It's not often I find things that honestly make me lol out loud to myself, but several of these did. The best part is that they really shouldn't be funny at all. A lot of them are actually very sad. But I laughed anyways. So here are some of my favorites:


Whats green and has wheels?
Grass, I lied about the wheels. 

A horse walked into a bar. Several people got up and left as they spotted the potential danger in the situation.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
I have a gun.
Get in the van.

A man walks into a bar, he is an alcoholic and is ruining his family.

What did the lawyer say to the other lawyer?
We are both lawyers.

What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?
Domestic violence is a crime. She should leave her abusive partner and seek help.

Two cows are in a field. Suddenly, from behind a bush, a rabbit leaps out and runs away. One cow looks around a bit, eats some grass and then wanders off.

So this guy walks into the Doctors and says "Doctor, it hurts when I poke my leg like this." The Doctor says "Yes, you've shattered both of your kneecaps. You'll never walk again."

A white guy, a black guy, and a spanish guy jump off a building. They all die on impact and their families mourn their loss for years to come.

What did the homeless man get for Christmas?
Nothing. He's homeless.

Why did the blond get fired from the M&M factory?
Repeated absences and stealing.

How do you make a plumber cry?
You kill his dog.

Why did Suzie fall of the swing?
She had no arms.

What do you call 100 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A horrible boating accident.


Whats worse than finding a worm in your apple?
AIDS.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

Krump.

Sorry for waiting so long to post something new, but to make up for it here is something everyone enjoys.  Little kids krump dancing!



Those kids are already better at dancing than I will ever be at anything. I look forward to their future on Americas Best Dance Crew.
